There are many beautiful moments on a wedding day: from the couple’s first kiss to their the first dance, but nothing is quite as sweet as the cake cutting. The cake cutting tradition stems all the back to Ancient Rome, where the couple would break bread together as an act of unity and luck. Today’s wedding desserts tend to be far more intricate than a loaf of bread, but the sentiment remains the same.
The dessert is also a place to showcase your wedding theme or celebrate the season with festive flavors. Below are our favorite ways to make your treats even sweeter.
Get Creative With the Cake Topper
Have some fun with the figurine you adorn the top of your cake with. The options for personalization are endless here, and double as a keepsake you will treasure forever.
Enhance your cake with seasonal flowers
Incorporating flowers gives your cake a natural seasonal touch. We love the way florals on the cake tie together bouquets and centerpieces.
Wow your guests with an impressive confection. These cakes are true works of art that will make your guests say, “how did they do that?”
A timeless option fit for every celebration. Appearances can also be deceiving with these cakes, a classic outside can be hiding a fun flavor within.
Surprise the groom with a separate dessert that celebrates his interests. A groom’s cake is a relatively new tradition at weddings, but there’s no such thing as too much dessert!
Cake Top & Dessert Alternatives
Not a fan of cake? A separate cake top will enable you to still partake in the cutting ceremony while your guests are able to enjoy a tasty alternative.
